The Highlighter newsletter, which comes out every Thursday at 9:10 am, is all about connecting loyal readers with high-quality articles about race, education, and culture. Ever since I launched the podcast two months ago, I’ve made sure to have loyal subscribers on the show — because what we read matters to what we do and how we are. I’ve wanted subscribers to get to know each other, and I’ve appreciated how our community has grown and gotten closer together.
This week on the podcast, there’s a big surprise. In addition to having a loyal subscriber on the show, there is also an author of one of the articles from last week’s newsletter.
Interviewing Zoë is social studies teacher Allison McManis, who teaches World History at City Arts and Technology High School in San Francisco. They talk about Zoë’s article, systemic inequities, and how our society allows infant mortality among African American babies to remain at a staggeringly high rate.
